Smell of typical czech 4 Euro rum leads to taste of typical romanian 6 Euro cognac and finishes with typical russian hangover for free.


I join with other comments. Hard to describe all the spices that rum is included. Worth trying. Me and my friend's favorite beverage !


The smell already was weird, a mix of vanilla and citrus
Then the taste, overly sweet, like a Jagermister, will have more vanilla and coffee too.
I would actually not really call this a rum, more a cough sirop.


I know this is a bizarre review but I am now on bottle number 3 which have been consumed over the previous 18 months or so. I can't quite work out why I don't hate this rum but then also cannot throw it out of my collection. Sometimes it tastes so strong and the smell knocks my sideways then other times it hurts so good! I'm at war with myself over the Old Monk and love it someday and hate it somedays I guess he will be here to stay so is that a bad thing or a great thing? Sometimes too bitter and lacking sweetness then surprises me with a mouthfuls of mild caramel eschews and treacle with coffee kicks. Not a rum for the fainthearted this is a thinking man's rum, but then I am not a thinking man! Oh dear Old Monk please help?


As an IT professional I might have some prejudices. It's not a bad rum, but on the other hand it has nothing to offer. It's just like calling from UK to British telecom helpdesk and ending up in Bangalore. It does the job but that's it. Let me try another sip...


Was really looking forward to this one, but was let down pretty quickly. First impression on the nose right away was strong vanilla and melted plastic. The first tastes (straight up) reinforce the nose. I had to do a double take and make sure I wasn't just drinking vanilla extract. They seem pretty close. I'm going to have to go fairly low on my impression of this right now, but I've got plenty of time to reevaluate as I've got a whole bottle. It may be something that needs to be acquired over time.


Sugar estimated at 10 GPL.
Definitely a rum for mixing. I found the major tastes and smells to be vanilla, raisins, spices, and something burned....could be the oak it was aged in but it smelled more like cedar to me. The vanilla and strong raisin smells leads me to think of rum and raisin ice cream which is a favourite of mine, however this rum is not. You can sip it, but only if there is no alternative. Nothing special here, but it's okay for mixed drinks.


When you think of rum, you probably don't associate it with India. However, India is the number one producer of sugarcane followed by Brazil. Old Monk is a fine example of rum hailing from India. Can be enjoyed neat or mixed. If you can find Old Monk XXX, I would strongly suggest trying it!


That's India rum but I've tried it in Nepal. That's really good rum! Maybe you can think that in this part of the world they can't make great rum...but that is really worth to try! But one thing! That what you can but in Europe is not same like India and Nepal!!! That from Asia is better!


A standard for dark rums, and a favorite in India. It has a very strong taste, drinkable neat (though I find it better with a few cubes of ice), or in a cocktail. Strong enough that the taste is not lost in a rum & Coke.
After a few drinks it tends to sit on the shelf now though, along with the Kraken and Captain Black. Tasty, but rarely a 'go-to'.


This is the most popular rum in India and also the first choice for all the budget conscious buyers. However, this is only good with coke. Try sipping it and it tastes like sweet syrup mixed with alcohol.


Has quite a burn down the pipe. Reeks of alcohol on the nose with hint of sweet dates.


This taste like vancomycin & should offer sure-fire remedy for Delhi-belly, Malaria, Dengue & the rest. Without coke/pepsi whatever this is a hard sell.


No doubt why it is extremely appreciated rum in India.
Oldmonk is available in kenya, cameroon , zimbabwe , zambia, tanzania and many other countries in Africa Now.

Smell of vanilla and tastes spicy. I realy enjoyed it. Great for sipping.


Ok this rum has a screw on cap and comes in around $20, that being the case and all things considered dollar spent it is a decent purchase. Has a great nose, lots of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla. Has notes of fruit and finishes decent. A little burn on the end but nothing noted in the gut. I like it, I am fairly picky when it comes to rum but for what it is and the scale it sits upon I would recommend it. Good neat but better with a splash of coke. Taste away!!


Strong vanilla notes with a side of burnt plastic. Not smooth by any means. I gave it a 4 which is "flawed with a glimmer of hope". The glimmer of hope comes from mixing with Coca Cola, which basically tastes like an alcoholic vanilla coke.

I do not recommend Old Monk and can't feasible understand why anyone would rate over a 6. Any person who drinks any other rum in it's price class ($21) would never select Old Monk.


I LOVE this rum. Its been my nightly choice as of late. I'm also a fan of Pyrat XO, so I like my odd sweet rums, I guess. SO good with coke. I can't get enough of this realistically priced rum. This is my fav.


Can't seem to define the very harsh flavour of this rum, definately not like any other. Not the worst rum I have tasted but would not buy again, interesting nether the less.


A nice rum for those who can't spend too much money. Qutie tasty, but not brilliant.


This is good rum, but should be taken as spiced rum. It is nice but it is almost to full of spice.


Harsh flavours and severe alcohol aftertaste. Lacks nay depth of flavour and for the price there is much better alternatives available.


Je to fakt bida. Druhy indicky rum a opet zklamani. Chut po bramborach...


Although it has an interesting smell. The taste leaves you wanting something more. I will never buy it again.
